A few years before the turn of the century of 1900, there was an immense growth in the production and success of the company Johann Loetz Witwe. In the year 1897, Tiffanys Favrile-Glass exhibits his glass collection in Reichenberg and Vienna which will provide a great inspiration for Loetz’s future designs. For this reason, experiments and new techniques are being developed that lead to new Phänomen Genres and complex designs.

This vase, executed in the Phänomen Genre 7624, dates from this important period. The model of this vase is production number 7498 and was designed in the year 1898. The version is one of the first Phänomen Genres that were developed and produced. Due to the success of the execution, this vase is also exhibited in the Summer Exhibition of the “Bayerischen Kunstgewerbevereins” in Munich in 1899 in preparation for the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900.

Provenance: This vase is acquired from the world famous collection of Barlach Heuer. The vase has a rich history and has been exhibited in several museum exhibitions, including the Loetz exhibition of the museum in Düsseldorf in 1972.

The year of the design of this vase is 1898, therefor this PN is a Series I production with Production Number 7498.
